Verdict

Starlight Air won over a similar trip at Fontwell last month and should go well off her new mark. Oscar Rainbow appears to be running into form and is another with decent claims while Music In The Air's fourth at Towcester was her best run so far. BRASS MONKEY won a bumper here last year and might do better over hurdles now qualified for handicaps. We'll take a chance on Charlie Longsdon's lightly-raced gelding in this finale even though I Can Run Can You is thrown in on his best form.
